Dudley Pope knows a thing or two about seafaring in the time of Nelson. I have to admit to becoming frustrated at the huge amount of assumed prior knowledge I lacked regarding jibbooms, larboards and "clewing up their courses". However, I persevered (thanks google) and I'm glad I did. Nicholas Ramage is the "Sharpe of the sea" and I will be reading more.

This book made one big mistake. Or, rather the series is beginning to make a big mistake: Toning down the silliness. There was not a single mention of that stupid throwing knife, or Ramage's endearing speech impediment, when these silly ideas are a large part of what makes this series charming. These books run on naval action, the interaction between Ramage and his men, and silliness. The prose is average, with a few confused metaphors. But when Pope writes naval action the series shines, bright [...]

With the novel in the Ramage series, Dudley Pope has established himself as one of the premier writers and portrayers of British naval actions in the Napoleonic age. This book has everything that one could ask for in a naval fiction book: a battle at sea, a hurricane, wrecking a ship on a coral reef, finding buried treasure, taking a Spanish prize vessel and, finally, but not least, a court martial.Lt. Ramage, captain of the brig HMS Triton, is assigned escort duties between Barbados and Jamaica [...]

This is the fourth book in the Lord Ramage series. Ramage is in command of the brig HMS Triton.

A French privateer cons his way into the convoy and attempts to capture a precious cargo. An unseasonable hurricane puts everyone in danger. The HMS Triton is dismasted and is at the mercy of winds [...]

Just a short cruise to the Caribbean from England what could go wrong? Well there is a privateer that is hiding in the convoy not much problem. Then there is a small matter of a hurricane that scatters the convoy. Shipwrecks on a Spanish held island and did I mention buried treasure. Well that is the story in a nutshell. Oh I forgot the court martial at the end, but that is just a part of the ending that is a standout finish. This is an exciting story for fans of the age of sail genre. So come a [...]

Gets off to a slow start, but ends up being my favorite Ramage book to date. Without giving away spoilers, one of the situations within this book lead the plot in a rather different direction from that of most of the genre. This direction adds a freshness and spark that sometimes gets lost in routine.Start this series from the beginning, however. Each book up until this point is worth it, and there this series calls back earlier books much more frequently than others in the genre.

An excellent book in which Ramage faces hurricanes, ship wrecks, and pirate treasure, before fighting a vicious adversity for his life. I particularly found the court martial scene fascinating and gripping.

Convoys, fighting off privateers, weathering a violent hurricane, ditching two de-masted ships on a Carribean isle (Snake Island), solving a riddle to uncover buried treasure, taking an emeny ship, escaping to Jamaica, surviving a court martial--all in good reading fun!

The first of the Ramage books - all of which are exciting and well written. The Ramage series ranks 3rd with me behind Hornblower and Bolitho for age of sail excitement. Ramage is just a little too good and nothing is impossible

Dudley Pope's "Ramage" is by far the best successor to Hornblower, and this volume 4 is best in that fantastic series. Not sure it could be read in isolation, which is a shame, because Book 1 drags in spots, but Books 2 and 3 are great -- and it all comes together here in Governor Ramage, R.N One of the best naval fiction reads you'll ever find. Most of the remaining Ramage series are good to excellent, particularly 7, 8 and 9.
